Ladies who love to run? New Balance
just started a series called Girls Night Out
from their Boylston Street location (read all about it on Healthy Chicks' blog)
. The evening starts with a fun run and winds down with stretching, live music, guest speakers by local fitness experts, cocktails and apps. I went to the first one on May 15th and had a blast!
